Synopsis


You've experienced the terror and mayhem of Batman: Arkham Asylum. You've battled Gotham's most sinister, lethal and forbidding villains in Batman: Arkham City. You've studied the psyche of the Dark Knight and immersed yourself in his quest to protect Gotham that you became the Caped Crusader every time you played the game. But there's one facet of Batman that you haven't yet experienced. One area that has remained in shadow — his past.

For the first time, you get to dive into the role of Batman before he battled and won against the laundry list of Gotham's most dangerous criminals in Batman: Arkham Origins. Experience an original prequel storyline set before the events in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Watch the story unfold as Batman transforms from a crime fighter into the Dark Knight. Become a young and unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early career that determines his fate and leads him to meet many important characters for the first time and forge key relationships that shape his destiny. For what's a man without his past? It's time to finally receive insight about the events that transformed the man into the hero.

    If you liked Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, this is another quality title. You could argue that the franchise needs some new ideas, but one could say that about any big series like Call of Duty or Assassins Creed. Graphics and sound are up to par and gameplay is as awesome as it's always been.

    I like the way the levels are set up. I enjoy re playing the game multiple times. It works well and I have had no difficulty with the software freezing.

    This is the third Batman game and it does not disappoint. Following the extremely good and engaging Arkham City, this game feels a little bit more like a DLC than a new game. Don't get me wrong that is not a bad thing, but it just feels more of the same. Hopefully with the next entry they can push the envelope and we can get another classic.

    I was a little concerned about this Arkham release after the two epics that preceded it, and this being marketed as a prequel with a new voice cast. However after playing the game it stood up very well on it's own. I really like that game takes place during the Christmas season which makes it a great game to revisit. Also Mr. Freeze DLC that is available for the game is really good as well.

    I heard this game would have tons of glitches but I didn't encounter any. Most I had was 1-2 occasional freezes but my save files never became corrupted. Pretty good game overall for the price I got it for!
